Although the weather seems relatively mild this week, we all know it's only a matter of time before we get hit with the bitter cold that is Chicago winter. The folks behind Forever Yogurt realized that although many people will indulge in their cool froyo throughout the winter, there are many out there who will want to warm-up with a hot drink. So to appease everyone, they developed a new in-store gourmet hot chocolate bar, Froth, which will open in all of their stores and remain year-round.
Forever Yogurt will still carry the same amount of self-serve yogurt flavors and toppings but the front of each of its locations will be devoted to Froth. Unlike the bright pinks and purples of Forever Yogurt, Froth is separated out with dark walnut furnishings and gold detail.
Froth's hot chocolate is made from melted chocolate rather than powders or syrups so the flavor remains rich and authentic, more of a drinking chocolate. You can choose from whole, 2 percent, soy or skim milk.
Currently there are seven flavors including:
· The Steam Engine (melted Hershey’s chocolate chips)
· The Cliffhanger (Andes mint)
· PB Confidential (Reese’s peanut butter cup)
· The Nocturnal Owl (Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
· Azteca (Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips and cayenne)
· Angelyne (Ghirardelli white chocolate chips)
· Hazelnut Boulevard (Nutella)
The plan is to add in other flavors made with nostalgic chocolate bars throughout the year to keep things interesting. And once your hot chocolate is prepared you can move on to the topping station and add various candy, nuts, marshmallows or whipped cream. Froth is thinking about serving some dressed-up croissants in the future with possible flavors like bananas foster and nutella. They currently serve plan croissants.
